PlayMaker

last updated 23 November 2018

PlayMaker aims to inspire young children to play and make with technology, sparking imagination and building creative confidence.

PlayMaker was piloted at more than 160 preschools in Singapore, giving preschoolers an early exposure to computational thinking and robotics with age- and developmentally-appropriate technology. Robotics offers a playful and collaborative way for children to engage with foundational technology and engineering concepts during their formative early childhood years. Young children are inspired to create with technology, experiment, fail and try again, imbuing them with the confidence to be creative.
